Living in a thin dark line: How can we make healthcare systems climate resilient?

Healthcare professionals will be crucial to advocating for and implementing healthcare systems that are climate resilient, says Caitlin Rublee. Tree rings are used by climate scientists to evaluate historical environmental conditions.
